My Take

Schoology is always changing to better fit the needs of teachers and students, which I really appreciate. It's a bit tough to support fully individualized learning right now, but I expect it will continue to improve. It does take awhile for people who have never used an LMS to learn Schoology thoroughly. That being said, it's easy to jump in and do a few little things right away to assess or communicate with your students.

How I Use It

I use Schoology for everything I can in my classroom. It holds daily schedules, homework assignments, reminders, supplemental videos, quizzes, tests, even test question banks from which it can randomly draw assessment questions. I save my courses every year so I don't have to reinvent the wheel, but it's still incredibly easy to modify things for the new school year. My students log in when I'm gone so they know exactly what to do when they have a sub. Parent access allows parents to follow student progress and help/encourage their kids as needed.
